Weekend Challenge: Random is as Random does!

I'm filling in for shinysylver this weekend as she is spending time at the hospital with her sick father - he's doing better than he was, thankfully, but the time is needed. I'm sending them healthy vibes, as I'm sure we all will.

OK, so let's get the ball rolling!  I have 25 random words/phrases which I hope will be inspiring!  Give me a number (or two) and I'll give you the corresponding prompt. Do with it what you will, however you will. Feel free to use it literally or use a little lateral thinking to twist it around. It's as random as the prompts are, so go for it!

Give me at least 200 words or 2 icons or a banner by midnight Thursday in your own timezone, and I will make you a couple of icons (of your choice) or get some WIP words done when I get my A back into G and actually write again.

Come on down, and comment away!


April count!

I'm not getting any better at adding these in the first day of the month, am I? Still, I got here at last, and I guess I should just say expect me to use the first weekend after each month end to do the update; if I get earlier we can all cheer! Anyway... on with the update!


April's count looks like this:

Image word: 324 x 1,000. This is up by an a modest 45, but I know I owe some stuff here, so next month will look better!

Written word: 805,763. This is up by a wonderful 187,965! Not as many words as last month, but still pretty darn good, everyone!

1_million_words Total words to date 2019: 1,129,763

Now, I said last month we should be able to hit the mill this month, and sure enough, WE DID IT!!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!

May's Music challenge is kicking off in full force soon, so don't forget to go add prompts, and watch out for the main post and get to work! Let's be creative out there!!! ;-)

Oh, and MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU :) , and RIP Peter Mayhew :(

Creative bust...

I didn't get words in...but I moved the old desk, finished building the new one, reconnected the printer, dishes and laundry, primed the bathroom and painted it. It will need touching up tomorrow, but its pretty much done.
Maybe I'll make up for the word absence tomorrow, if I can move ;)
In the meantime, sharpiesgal is up for Sunday. Run with it!
